How has your pursuit of the Lesley PhD in Educational Studies resulted in personal and/or professional opportunities for you?
Lesley University’s Ph.D. program — the faculty, staff, students, and curriculum — created opportunities for me to explore and expand my scholarship by engaging with many other individuals with rich and diverse experiences and perspectives.

Please share any tips for those considering a doctoral degree, embarking upon the Lesley PhD, or for those candidates who are engaged in writing the dissertation.
The creative process is unique to each individual — enjoy yours.
